Asia's top genre celebration is almost upon us, and as we pack our bags for the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BiFan), we've prepared a few titles to look out for in this year's vast program. Between our recent festival travels we've managed to see a few of the titles on offer, but beyond recent favourites, BiFan is also fielding a broad lineup of classic films, not least the sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner, which serves as the theme for this edition. As this year is the 100 year anniversary of Korean cinema, there are also a number of lesser known classic Korean films peppered throughout the program, while screen legend Kim Hye-soo is the subject of a career retrospective.
